Gmax and HIC testing in Branford, Connecticut
When a player collides with the surface, the impact generated is absorbed by either the player or the surface. Gmax testing ensures the surface is of high enough quality to absorb sufficient impact, protecting the players from excessive impact. ASTM requires pitches to have a gmax rating of no greater than 200g’s to be deemed safe for use.
Gmax testing measures the impact absorbed by a players torso whilst HIC (Head Impact Criterion) focuses on a players head.
